Default Ever been so tired...

That it feels like you're moving in slow motion?
Thats how I feel, I need suggestions I stay awake at work. ( I do midnight-8am ) I have 3.5 hrs left and I'm slowly falling asleep! Home brewers assemble I need help!
Energy drinks, 5hr energy, coffee, cold air, hot air all of those don't work to help keep me up.

Sunflower seeds and a Coke. That helps me stay awake and alert when I'm on a long drive. YMMV

Carry along a big cup of ice or ice water......when you begin to nod, just fill your mouth with icewater and hold it. The cold sensation on your teeth would wake up a hibernating bear.

This. It beats the hell out of pumping yourself full of sugar and caffeine. I have pulled enough stints of graveyard shift to know that the best thing to do is just let your adrenaline take over.

Move around a lot. I used to work overnights and did pushups to stay awake most nights.
